  • What is the “Theology of Glory”?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jun 23, 2012 Category: Articles

    There is an appropriate tension in the relationship between Christians and the world. We serve a Lord who came to bring life abundant (John 10:10), who has overcome the world (John 16:33), who is bringing all things under subjection (Ephesians 1:22), who will see every knee bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord, to the glory of the Father (Philippians 2:10). Jesus is the second Adam succeeding where the first Adam failed, not only in obeying God's law perfectly, not only atoning for our failure to keep the law, but in fulfilling the dominion mandate.

  • Do Familial Curses Still Exist?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jun 09, 2012 Category: Articles

    God tells us in Exodus 20 that He will visit "the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me," (verse 5). That might settle the issue, but then God also told us this, "In those days they shall say no more: ' The fathers have eaten sour grapes, And the children's teeth are set on edge.'" (Jeremiah 31:29). Does this mean that there was, in the old covenant, familial curses, and that in the new they no longer exist? I think not. Keep Reading
